Blogger's Challenge Week 63 -- You got to be in it to win it.


This week's Blogger's Challenge was a super easy one for me. It was a color challenge and they are all new in-colors. I just love the brand new line of colors this year. My favorite ever! They are bold and fun which is just my style. We were to use four of the new colors...

Kiwi Kiss
Tangerine Tango
Riding Hood Red
and
Pacific Point

These just happen to be my favorites! The other are more muted subtle colors.

I also combined this with the



this weeks challenge was to use paper piecing. I knew I wanted to do a Halloween card and only have two sets from Storage Units Inks & More (for now) so I used the stamping up set Haunting Halloween for this time around. Why not play along with either of these challenges.


I hope you enjoy my card today and please take some time to check out the other players by clicking on the logo on the right side of my blog.





Stamps: Haunting Halloween
Paper: Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango, Riding Hood Red, and Pacific Point card stock with Bella Rose DP scraps.
Ink: Basic Black
Other: Cuttlebug embossing folder, mini black brads, colored pencils, blender pens.

YOU GOT TO BE IN IT TO WIN IT!
OVER $200 WORTH OF BRAND NEW STAMPS SET COULD BE YOURS.

It seems that there are only 18 people out there that want to help others, get a tax write off and have a chance at winning over $200 in brand new stamps sets all at one time. That don't seem right. I am so happy that I am happy to say that I am one third of the way to my goal! But I need more so I am resorting to a little begging. Won't you consider even a two dollar donation to help others and you never know you may walk away with all of this......

CLICK HERE TO SEE ALL 21 STAMPS SET AND GIFT CARD TOO


The walk is on the 14th so time is running out. Don't miss your chance to win!


TGIF!
Thank God I'm Forgiven!

Thank God It's Friday!
